Wind turbines

How wind power works

Wind is the flow of air in the atmosphere. Differences in air pressure cause the air to move from high pressure areas to low pressure areas. In a wind turbine, the wind is converted to 100 per cent renewable electricity.

How wind power works

The wind power expansion has progressed strongly in Sweden and today we are one of the countries in Europe that has the most wind power in relation to the total energy production in the country. With a planned phase-out of nuclear power, wind power is expected to play an even greater role in the future energy system. Large land areas, good wind conditions and a stable, deregulated electricity market mean that Sweden has good conditions for establishing large-scale wind power.
